a look. good morning. thursday, july 12th. mitt romney, staring at the naacp convention. with us former treasury official and "morning joe" economic analyst, steve rattner. the executive editor of bloomberg news, al hunt and rounding out our michael bloomberg hour morning, columnist for bloomberg, margaret carlson. in new york, a man whose company i'm sure will be owned by michael bloomberg, executive editor at random house, "time" magazine contributing editor jon meacham and also editorial writer for "the washington post" and msnbc contributor jonathan capehart. jonathan. >> yeah. >> let's start with you. >> hey, joe. >> mitt romney, at the naacp convention. that just sort of -- like those old reesy's ads, two great tastes that go great together. not a natural audience for mitt romney and it didn't go especially well. why did he do it? >> i mean, i would hope he did it because what he says, you know, looking for every vote possible and wanted to show respect to the community and ask for their votes. but you don't go there and say that you are going to be better for the african-american
all sides. we're nonpartisan. for us, it's about the agenda. what you plan on doing for our communities. in this case, the problem, and the reason the booing happens in the first place, quite frankly, wasn't because he kritdicized the affordable care act. it's because of his characterization of it using barack obama's name along those lines, seemed very disrespectful. soez those kind of things were very problematic. sure, we disagree with him, and no we don't think they're in the best interest of the naacp or the communities we serve. as a matter of fact, what we did with this particular convention is set our policy, and as the press release said, these policies are in opposition in many cases with the policy positions of the naacp. >> mayor nutter, your city is 44% african-american. 18% of registered african-american voters in philadelphia, they lack a voter id. does mitt romney need to answer for these voter id laws? >> well, if he's running for president of the united states, he should certainly have something to say about it. if he cares about the american right to vote
it was always pick as many fights as possible. no. i think -- i think you -- wherever you are, you use the event to your advantage and if you're going into a hostile audience -- for me, and i think usually for most politicians, it's to do what tim kaine is doing, by the way, from what i've heard across virginia very well, he's going to all of his enemies first and saying hey, listen, i understand you're not going to be with me, but i'm going to always listen to you. you know, i always would go into neutrals. on this stage, i don't think there was any doubt about it he was playing to conservatives, some would say cynically and he was playing to independents saying, hey, you know, all the stuff you heard about me i only tell people what they want to hear, watch this. and let me give you one more clip, here's mitt romney when he got booed talking about president obama's health care plan. >> i'm going to eliminate every nonessential expensive program i can find, that includes obama care, and i'm going to work to reform and save -- [ boo ] >> of course, steve rattner, throughout the day, mitt romney
, but he won't show us his. it's kind of fascinating. >> reporter: when his father, george romney man for president in 1968, he released 12 years of tax returns saying a single return could "be a fluke" done for show. earlier this year, mitt romney was challenged to do the same thing. >> will you follow your father's example? >> maybe. >> reporter: he didn't. instead releasing just his 2010 return and an estimate of his taxes for 2011. telling diane sawyer that's plenty. >> we have released all the information required by law and then some. >> reporter: we have looked back and found every presidential nominee in both parties over the last three decades has released more tax returns. romney says he will release his 2011 return when he finishes it. but that's it. not that he doesn't have more returns handy. when he was under kid rauconsid to be john mccain's runningmate, he gave mccain 23 years of tax returns, noting at the time i af am a bit of a pack rat i had them all. the romney campaign calls all this attention to his personal finances a distraction, an effort they say by the obama

was longtime director, of course, head of the fbi. this is someone who is used to looking into various investigations of a criminal nature. but also he has a background and has served on a board of the national center for missing and exploited children. so he certainly has a background and has said that he cares very deeply about the exploitation of children. he had a lot of work to be done. he certainly was going to be looking at whether penn state followed his own procedures, and he has said this publicly, for handling allegations of sexual mis conducond misconduct, especially involving children. >> i know you want to get to that report. susan, we'll get back to you from philadelphia. >>> over the next two hours, you'll be hearing about all of the key players surrounding the pennstate scandal, including joe paterno, the legendary head coach that was dismissed in the wake of the charges. in the statement released today, paterno's family calls him, quote, highly principled and says select emails have been leaked in an attempt to smear his name. we'll also hear more about jerry sandusky

us? >> sure, zoraida. i think we'll expect the horse race all the way up to november to stay this close. this is going to be one of those real, real tight presidential elections p. but, of course, there are certain bullet points that we focus on when we're looking at these numbers. let's look at this number on the economy. the economy, issue number one in this election. what most voters will likely vote on come november. mitt romney has a six-point advantage over president obama right now when asked who has a better idea to improve the economy. very good news for the romney campaign up in boston when they see that number. however, out in chicago, you can see that the obama campaign can take solace in this number on likability. a 20-point gap, zoraida. president obama, 60% of americans like president obama while only 47% like romney. now, the reason why that's important for president obama and how you all tie it together regarding the economy, president obama has been making the argument that he needs another four years to turn around the economy and that he was handed a very

't need a special council. we're going to have a couple of u.s. attorneys, one from d.c. and one from maryland, they're going to investigate which some say is political. clearly they work for the attorney general that works for the president. anyway, we'll play you -- we'll give you both the quotation. here first is senator feinstein on monday essentially taking aim at the white house for spilling the political beans, the secret beans. >> i think the white house has to understand that some of this is coming from its ranks. i don't know specifically where. but they're, i think, they have to begin to understand that and do something about it. >> and then up next, she again another statement just yesterday and we have this one for you, too. i stated that i did not believe the president leaked classified information. i shouldn't have speculated beyond that because of the fact of the matter is i don't know the source of the leaks. but, you know, this really brings up the issue of transparency as well which is something that the obama administration has promised from day one and if you'll
the taxes like crazy. we need freedom. >> good to have you with us, folks. thanks for watching. mitt romney spoke to the naacp convention in houston, texas today. he delivered a speech short on specifics and long on tepid generalities. >> some may wonder why a republican would campaign in the african-american community and address the naacp. i hope to address every american of every race, creed, and sexual orientation. from the poorest to the richest and everyone in between. >> romney was greeted with polite applause throughout the speech, and even got some encouraging organ music. >> i can't promise you that i'll agree on every issue, but i do promise that your hospitality to me today will be returned. we will know one another. and we will work to common purpose. >> the audience gave romney their attention and a fair hearing. at the end of the speech, the crowd respectfully offered a standing ovation to the candidate. the attendees gave him some credit for showing up. unlike the previous president, george w. bush, who openly shunned any invitations to the naacp convention. but there was on

of the esteem of history. my question i wanted to pursue in the op-ed he use was how realistic is this? so i looked at history's judgment and as you heard, history's judgment is generally can tittered to be the judgment of the historians in the polls of the academics that we begin with arthur schlesinger junior's senior in 1948 in the pc did after a poll he took in life magazine insert a great deal of interest, showing the american people have a real fascination and affection really for their president the massive body of literature that's grown up as a result of those polls over time. so there's a generally recognized consensus on the part of historians and plenty of room for discussion about where so-and-so belongs, john adams, for example for grover cleveland. i'll talk about both momentarily but then the contemporaneous outlet draped. well, 82 term president is obviously receives higher esteem on part of the electorate than a one term president. a two-term president succeeded by his own party, meaning that he had two terms that were judged by the voters to be worthy of detention on part
